SNMP Protocol Operation
SNMP Versions: SNMPv1-3
CLI Utility: snmpset
Protocol List:

The SET command is used to send configuration or commands to an SNMP agent. The contents will include a list of OIDs and values to be assigned to those OIDs.

The expected returned PDU will be a RESPONSE, although a REPORT may be issued as well in certain SNMPv3 circumstances.

If an error occurs during the processing of the request, then the RESPONSE will contain an error code along with an index number of the OID that caused the problem.
